Services 
Business Law Disputes

We specialise in helping to resolve shareholder and director disputes in a whole range of business structures, from partnership disputes to protecting minority shareholder rights and bringing derivative claims where necessary.  Our lawyers are described as being “hands-on, pragmatic and totally commercially oriented” in the profession’s key directory – exactly what is required when dealing with sensitive disputes in this field.

Commercial Property Litigation

Whether you’re bringing a lease to an end or trying to recover possession from a difficult commercial tenant, we are here to help protect your investment.  We were recently instructed to act in relation to the recovery of high-profile premises in the heart of Mayfair being occupied by squatters and recovered possession what was considered by the High Court Enforcement Officers in “record time.”  We can also help to resolve disputes relating to dilapidation claims and the recovery of unpaid rent together with disputes concerning rent deposit deeds and commercial leases generally.

Contract and commercial disputes

Our specialist team gets quick results where necessary or seek alternative dispute resolution channels that save you money, management time and the consequential disruption to your business. We help you resolve disputes over land, property and money, keeping the costs in check and importantly, the end in sight.

Debt Recovery

Our robust system for debt recovery get you your money and it needn’t cost you a penny.  We offer flexible fee arrangements depending on your requirements and our connection with the County’s best Insolvency Practitioners will ensure that your position is best protected if the worst happens and your debtor becomes insolvent.

Injunctions and urgent steps

We specialise in bringing and resisting injunction applications.  Our work in this field was recently recognised by the Legal 500 – the client’s guide to the legal profession.  We have the resources and expertise available to carry out the necessary work at short notice, particularly where matters are time-critical and strength in depth is paramount.

Insolvency

We are regularly instructed by the country’s largest insolvency practitioners to settle disputes in the context of an insolvency or other restructuring procedure.  Our experience in this field is unrivalled with dedicated lawyers who know precisely how to handle such disputes.  We regularly handle disputes involving retention of title clauses and directors’ misfeasance.

Restrictive Covenants

Our team has developed a real expertise in defending and enforcing restrictive covenants, arising in both an employment context but also in other commercial agreements such as shareholder agreements and business sale agreements.  In a constantly evolving area of the law, experience is vital to ensure that your business is not interrupted whether you’re bringing or defending such an action.  We work closely with the firm’s employment law team to ensure that we’re always aware of changes in the Court’s approach.
